Default Potential transfers from smaller leagues

Guys, we usually talk about players from Spainish League and other top European leagues. But what about guys who play in smaller leagues? Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa... Many stars of modern football come from there. So why can't we take note of these countries? Yes, I can understand that there will be language and lifestyle difficulties with such guys but from the other hand we can buy talented footballers for smaller amounts of money. What do you think?

Well, we already have an exotic player: Canadian Philippine De Guzmán... If we add Tekke would also be an exotic addition. Spice it up with some Ugandese defender and voilà, you have a marvellous dish...
I agree with you that Depor shouldn't look just to the top 4 leagues (Spain, Italy, Germany and England) but it's a question of scouting infrastructure. Depor has only one scout, Richard Moar, and he's specialised in the Bundesliga. You can't ask him to go to countries as Nigeria, Cameroon, etc. looking for new talents... No time for that as Depor needs also experienced players.
What Depor should do is to send some Fabril and u-18 coaches to scout international competitions for youngsters. We don't do it right now; we just ask some agents what do they got.

Derek Riordan of Hibs is up for grabs after he rejected a recent contract offer. Celtic have had a pathetic bid rejected but he is the type of player who could play abroad because he is so technically gifted.

I would add here at least France and Portugal.

That's very sad. I really can't understand how such famous clus as Depor has only one scout! Is scouting such rare profession? Do scouts demand enormous salary? What's the problem?!

Yes, I agree! Collecting talented youngsters is a good idea which can bring success in future!

Portuguese and French leagues are worth a try... Because of history, they have good links with Africa and they can be 'used' as scout for African talents. Of course, it's not good if you only scout teams as Lyon, Monaco or Oporto as they will ask you lot os money... But scouting teams as Nantes, Auxerre, Sporting Lisbon (with good youth team all of them) ain't bad. Some of the best defenders we have had came from Portugal (Naybet, Helder, Andrade) while we had some fairly good frenchmen (Ziani, Martins, Songo'o). None of them was very expensive (Andrade costed us 12 mill. but we can sell him easily for 20).

Depor is not very professional, it's the miracle of just one man, Lendoiro. His way of scouting is to ask friends (Carlos Silva, Brazilian coach), and player's agents, then cross-checking the informs with Richard Moar. That helps cutting costs and saving money which can be used to pay player's salaries, etc.

I think it would be too expensive... Deportivo is looking for non expensive players, preferably if they are free agents (Baiano, Tekke...). I guess if Depor can sell some one (Pandiani, Tristán, Luque, etc.) then we will be able to spend some money (no much anyhow). Guess it's just "wait and see" time

He is staying put for now but 2 unnamed premiership clubs were asking about him as well as Atletico Madrid.

There is a good moroccan player in the BUNDESLIGA 2 with duisburg which will be in Bundesliga 1 the next season, he plays also with the moroccan team.
his name is ABDELAZIZ AHNAFOUF, and he's a talented striker.
He scored 17 goals in les than 34 matchs, which means about one goal in two matches!!
